The Lacepede Islands are Western Australia's most important breeding habitat for green turtles (Chelonia mydas), and have been named by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area (IBA). The breeding colony of brown boobies is possibly the largest in the world. Up to 20,000 roseate terns have also been recorded here. Other birds breeding on the islands include masked boobies, Australian pelicans, lesser frigatebirds, eastern reef egrets, silver gulls, crested, bridled, and lesser crested terns, common noddies, pied and sooty oystercatchers. Join your expedition team for a guided ZodiacĀ® tour to view the prolific wildlife. Due to the sensitive nature of the environment, landings are prohibited on the Lacepede Islands.,
